Charlotte Scott Owner/Pet Sitter


St. Johns

My name is Charlotte Scott, owner of Paws and Claws Pet Sitting since 2007. I have had a love for animals since I was a little girl. We had tons of animals growing up and from the time I was 4 years old I was bottle feeding kittens and barrel racing horses. We had everything from hamsters, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, goats, cows, horses, rabbits and even geese. After 14 years in corporate America I realized my heart was always somewhere else. I attended Vet Tech school from 2011-2012. I have been a volunteer at the Wildlife Rescue Coalition and even became a foster mom to baby squirrels for 4 years. I have spent time volunteering at the St. Johns County Pet Center helping to socialize their dogs and cats and I currently volunteer at the St. Augustine Humane Society on surgery days by assisting in the recovery area. We take vitals and help bring their body temperatures back to normal as they come out of anesthesia. When you hire me you are not just getting someone who loves pets but someone who has lots of experience in spotting signs of illness or if your pet is in medical danger. Thank you for visiting our page and we look forward to meeting your pets.

My name is Brittany Manno. I am the founder and director of First Coast Beagle Rescue here in Jacksonville which began back in 2009. We have rescued and successfully re-homed hundreds of beagles since then. I always have a house full of hounds between my own personal dogs and rescue beagles that come and go. I also very much enjoy therapy dog work and training.


I met Charlotte a few years ago when I hired her and her staff to take care of my own herd of hounds. I was extremely impressed with all the sitters who took excellent care of my babies.


I am now honored to be part of Paws and Claws team and can’t wait to meet some new fur babies to love like my own.

Pat Pet Sitter


St. Johns

My name is Pat Rountree. Growing up I have always had a deep love for all animals. If a dog or a cat were lost it seemed they always came my way. I retired from Florida East Coast Railway after 30 years. I realized that being retired is great but I needed to be doing things I enjoyed so I became a Nanny. I was so thankful when Charlotte asked me to join her team. It is great to be working with a group of ladies that share the same love and dedication to taking care of your special pets and treat them as our own.

I wake up every day with a smile knowing I will be taking care of a family pet.

My name is Patty Crumb. I am a teacher by trade and although I love children, I also love animals! I have always had cats and dogs as part of my family and currently have three cats and a large breed dog. I have volunteered in pet shelters as well as pet sat for friends and family. When caring for your pets I will treat them as my own, with care and love.

Pet Sitter Wendy


North & South Mandarin

I have had pets my whole life. When my children were small, they used to tell me that I loved the dogs more than I loved them! It wasn’t true, but I do have a special place in my heart for animals. I “stumbled” into pet sitting when my minister asked me to watch his dog and I loved it! I treat all my client’s pets as if they were my own. I currently share my home with three brown rescued “mutts” or maybe I should say they share their home with me!
